Local Policing Priorities

Date agreed: 21 March 2018


The Farmwatch scheme for Aberystwyth Rural is to be improved with the facility for Mobile Updates in the form of text messages which will be sent out to all members of the scheme. Updates will include appeals for information, warnings regarding suspicious vehicles, fuel thefts and missing person appeals just to name a few. The scheme currently covers all Farms that use the Nant Y moch mountain range however, it is envisaged that the scheme will be rolled out to other areas once the updating of Nant Y Moch Farmwatch scheme is completed.

Date agreed: 07 September 2015


Police are reminding caravan owners to secure their caravans and remove all valuables when they lock up for the winter.

In previous years there have been instances where caravans have been broken into and items stolen. October to January is a particularly quiet period when tourists and residents are away from Caravan sites, the burglars find it easy to access during these times.

To support the public, the Neighbourhood Policing Teams have flyers and posters available for Caravan and site owners to display in the windows to highlight that there are no valuables kept inside – and will also assist with additional crime prevention advice.

  • Improving security can make a real difference in deterring burglars:
  • Ensure external equipment, bicycles and children’s toys are not left outside
  • Close and lock all access doors
  • Fit window and Door locks – easily visible locks may deter some thieves 
  • Remember to remove expensive items away from windows and keep them out-of-sight 
  • Mark your property with Ultra Violet Pens. There are currently a number of innovative liquid forensic coding systems also available which are a great deterrent.

Dyfed-Powys police covers one of the most rural police areas in England and Wales.

We regularly receive calls from farmers, landowners and members of the public reporting farm animals being chased by dogs and in the most serious of cases where sheep in particular have been savaged and killed by dogs or having to be put down by a veterinary surgeon.

Dog owners

If you are walking your dog in the countryside

  • Do not allow your dog to enter a field on its’ own and keep it under your control at all times.

  • Keep your dog on a leaf when crossing through fields that contain livestock. However don’t hang onto your dog if you are threatened by cattle, let it go as the cattle will chase the dog.

  • Stick to public right of ways.

    When at home

  • Make sure you know where your dog is at all times.

  • Ensure that your property is secure and that your dog cannot escape day or night.


If you know your dog has previously chased or attack sheep then take responsible measures to prevent it happening again.


Farmers/Landowners/Livestock owners

  • Dial 101 to report incidents of livestock worrying to Dyfed-Powys Police.

  • Take photographs of injuries to the livestock.

  • If you are able to, secure the dog until the Police arrive so that evidence can be gathered to identify the owner of the dog.

  • Put signs up on gateways alerting dog walkers to the presence of livestock in the fields.

  • If sufficient evidence is available the Police can prosecute the dog owner on your behalf.

  • Compensation for damage caused is a civil matter between you and the dog owner.

  • If you shoot a dog using the criteria under the Animals Act 1971 then ensure you notify the Police within 48 hours.

Not sure? Don’t open the door!  Operation Rogue Trader 2015.

Aberystwyth NPT would like to give some advice regarding unwanted traders. PCSO’s will be busy throughout this week highlighting the steps you can put into place to prevent you from becoming a victim. 

1: If you don’t know who they are, don’t open the door.

2: If they are from a company, check their identity by phoning the company using contact telephone numbers from your local directory.

3: Check if they are a member of the Consumer Codes Approval Scheme or the Government Trust Mark Scheme?

4: Talk to a friend or relative about any work you need doing.  They may know a reputable trader.

5: It is ok to say no.  Don’t agree to anything on the spot

6: Don’t pay cash up front and don’t feel pressured by sales techniques.

7: If you think there is a rogue trader at your door, call us on 999.


Op Santa (Gyrru)


Tis the season to be jolly but Dyfed Powys Police is asking revellers to also know your limits and drink sensibly.
Everyone likes to enjoy themselves at Christmas, but each year police deal with a minority of revellers who don’t know when to stop. This can often lead to problems such as anti-social behaviour and crime including violent crime, domestic abuse and drink driving offences.
We don’t want to spoil people’s enjoyment at this time of year, but we ask that revellers consider the effects that excessive drinking can have on themselves and others and drink within their limits. Alcohol can make people behave in ways they never normally would.
Visit our Operation Santa web page for advice on how to make your night out one to remember for the right reasons! follow us on twitter @DyfedPowys and @AberystwythNPT Use #OpSanta to join the conversation.



Noson Calan Gaeaf a Noson Guto Ffowc


During the Halloween and Bonfire celebrations, officers are increasing patrols in their communities to reassure people and to enable us to react quickly to anyone who uses Halloween or bonfire night as an excuse to commit anti-social behaviour.


Some of our residents do worry when trick or treaters knock the door. While we do not want to spoil people’s enjoyment, we also don’t want it to get out of hand and cause people to feel threatened in their own home.


Trick or treating advice includes:

• Always go with an adult

• Only to go to houses where you or your friends know the people and know you are welcome

• Only go to houses displaying the ‘trick or treaters’ welcome poster

• Don’t talk to strangers

• Don’t enter the house always stay on the doorstep
